This repurposed light bulb has become an aquarium with a Marimo moss ball pet rolling in it. The light bulb was cleared out safely. It has a diameter of about 3 inches and is 4 inches tall. The brown base is about 1 inch tall. You can be creative with the placement of the light bulb by changing its angle! It can either make a nice decoration for your home/office, or a special gift for your friend! Even though the light bulb no longer produces light, it can still brighten your day!:)

This item is 100% original and handmade by us and has been featured on Etsy front page!

Here's some info about this Marimo pet. It's a live green algae, which naturally forms a cute round shape. It will grow bigger slowly over time. It gets its name from Mari meaning "ball" in Japanese and "mo" meaning algae in Japanese. Japanese people consider Marimo ball as a National Treasure and believe that it will bring good luck, so it's very popular in Japan. Also, in Iceland it is believed that if you take good care of Marimo ball, it will “make your wishes come true”.

One very interesting fact about Marimo is that it sinks or floats freely due to its interaction with water and air. So if you see it float sometimes, that means it's just having fun with the nature!

There's almost no maintenance for Marimo. All it needs is to be completely under water and indirect or artificial light! There is no requirement for what kind of water you use. You can just use tap water for it! You only need to change water once every 1-2 weeks. And it will grow slowly and happily:) It's that easy! Just make sure not to drop your Marimo ball down to the sink when you change water...

It's fun to observe this interesting and mysterious Marimo ball, and to shake the vase gently to spin the Marimo ball around. This can help it grow more evenly and round!

Our Marimo balls are all very green, fresh and round! High quality guaranteed!

This listing includes:
Fresh live Marimo moss ball at the quantity you choose (the size of Marimo will vary slightly to the one in the pictures);
A repurposed light bulb;
A brown base to put the bulb on;
Some natural sand (color varies slightly from pics);
A Marimo care instruction sheet.

This would also look great with several Marimo balls in the water:) They can get along well and make good friends! If you want more than one ball for each light bulb, just choose a different quantity when purchasing. The extra Marimo balls would be $3 for each. The Marimo Quantity is for each light bulb when you order multiple light bulbs. For example, if you order two light bulbs, and choose "With 1 Marimo Ball" under "Marimo Quantity", you will be getting 1 Marimo Ball FOR EACH LIGHT BULB, so in total two Marimo balls since you are buying two light bulbs.

In order to protect the light bulb and Marimo ball, this item comes as a kit but all you need to do is simply putting the sand, water, and Marimo ball in the light bulb vase, and then put the vase on the base. It's very easy! Notice that light bulbs are fragile, so we do not recommend you to put any hard objects such as rocks and wood in it!
